Please support Steve´s epic efforts to keep us alive for all three days of The Long Walk!
Mister Steve Cashley is an active member of the English speaking community on the south of Gran Canaria. A IT business man and tech guru he supplies and fixes a range of types of connectivity for customers across the island, focused particularly on TV and Internet.
Steve spends much of what spare time he has also supporting various other organisations and community groups, not just financially but by always lending a hand when able and assisting in the transport of donations including furniture and other large items in support of The Food Project and various animal rescue organisations.
Since the very first long walk Steve has been an active supporter of our activities, and for the last 7 years has always walked with us on the last day for the final 20km or so of The Long Walk. This year once again he has agreed to drive our support vehicle for all three days, and so will be sent off into the mountains with a van full of luggage and water and medical supplies to become our vital link between various waypoints keeping us safe and hydrated, and acting as first responder should any of us run into difficulties.
He will be with us for the last leg from Parque Sur Maspalomas where we hope to find a few more supporters to walk the last sunset stretch to Playa del Inglés with us…
“This year, once again, I have been asked to drive the support vehicle over the three days being in attendance in case of accident or injury and meeting with the walkers to supply food and water en route.
I will also be ferrying their belongings to the two overnight stay locations. Thus, it seems that I will not be able to walk on day 3 as I have in previous years. However, if anyone wants to sponsor/ donate towards the excellent causes that we fund-raise for Canarian Breast Cancer and Gynaecological Cancer Association, the ACCMyG.org and for the Mogán Neighbours Food Bank project, Nabojelpen, which directly assists local families in need.
I have lost both parents and far too many friends and family members to cancer, so I am happy to what I can to help. Please donate “
